Thank you to everyone who entered the December 2011 – March 2012 photo competition.

As in previous rounds, the judges were impressed by the quality of the photos submitted. As well as selecting the winning photo, we have therefore awarded three joint second placings. These photos are all displayed below.

The winner of the December 2011 – March 2012 photo competition at the Australian Synchrotron is Kerryn Elliott from the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research for a photo (see below) of a capillary on the SAXS/WAXS (small and wide angle x-ray scattering) beamline.


Joint second placings go to the following, in no particular order:
